Boyce Avenue – Tonight lyrics

The cars pass by outside
From one sign to the next
She tries to listen
Tries to care
Pretending he knows best

She's afraid of what she's done
Not knowing what it is
She prays for something
Prays for his sins
Someday she'll find rest

But the time is never right
No it's never right
To step outside her life
To find what's been lost
She'll sleep on it tonight

A voice she left behind
Tells her that there's time
She bears the burden
Blames her own sin
Hopes she'll change her mind

The pain that never hides
A reflection from inside
She conceals the message
Buries her head
Tells herself she's fine

But her eyes
They say goodbye
No, they never lie

The windows to her life
To find what's been lost
She'll sleep on it tonight

Ooh she'll sleep on it tonight

Oh she feels alive without a reason

Love
Pain
Tonight
She finally listens

She comes alive
Without a reason

Love
Pain
Tonight
She finally listens

She comes alive
Without a reason

Love
Pain
Tonight
She finally listens

She feels alive
Without a reason

    This song is sung and written about a girl from another person's perspective. The writer is telling the girl that is afraid to love because she doesn't believe in love. She's lost hope because of life's setbacks, she's been through a lot of pain/rejection and is still trying to deal with all her past pain/hurt/rejection. She can't really have faith in love when she's been hurt so much in the past.

    She's watching the outside world while someone's talking to her, trying to tell her something. She can't listen to him, she can't hear him, doesn't want to. She can't leave the situation the person in order to find out what she's really feeling and why.

    There's a voice inside her, telling her to listen to her hurt, her pain. She won't listen, she won't hear it. But the pain is always there, it's in her eye's and won't leave until she faces it. She always chooses to "sleep on it" leave it for another day. She always puts it off, always tomorrow, never today.

    The ending of the song has hope though. Like it's saying that finally she will hear that hidden voice inside and when she does, she'll come alive again. She'll be herself again, alive, full of hope, full of faith and full of love.
